Extensively revised and updated, this new edition of a classic resource provides powerplant engineers with a full range of information from basic operations to leading-edge technologies, including steam generation, turbines and diesels, fuels and fuel handling, pollution control, plant electrical systems, and instrumentation and control. New material covers various energy resources for power generation, nuclear plant systems, hydroelectric power stations, alternative and cogeneration energy plants, and environmental controls. With over 600 drawings, diagrams, and photographs, it offers engineers and technicians the information needed to keep powerplants operating smoothly into the 21st century.Therefore, the large-volume combustion wastes were considered nonhazardous and exempted from subtitle C of RCRA. ... When EPA considered the low-volume wastes, it found that certain waste streams produced during equipment maintenance, ... The study further concluded that combustion wastes from coal- fired electric utilities will continue to grow and that the costs to manage these wastes willanbsp;...
